The St. Regis Mohawks, who voted on Nov. 21, not to pursue an off-reservation casino, are now back at the table. On Monday, the tribe announced that a Nov. 21 referendum “null and void,” where tribal members shot down making another attempt at pursuing an Indian casino. During that referendum, 178 people voted “no” to pursue a casino, while 140 “yes.” The referendum was appealed and found not to meet a 30-day public posting for referendums.
